  1. I listened to your entire podcast today on Smart Bitches. I was very intrigued as I’ve started writing a historical romance about the fishing industry on the coast of the US. It’s very Swedish and Chinese (per history) and at one point or another, love and simple mathematics had to come into place with mixed race relationships. I’ve been struggling with how to deal with this. So I wanted to say thank you. I at least feel a bit more confident that there might be a market out there somewhere for a historical romance not set in an English castle.

    1. I think readers are really interested in new and different historical settings. I know nothing about the coastal fishing industry, and your story would def pique my interest! Good luck with the writing! 🙂

  2. Hello,

    I am interested in joining your writing class at the library. I saw an advertisement for it for January. Is there another cycle coming up soon?

    Thanks!
